Looks like Elizabeth may have had a twin sister. 1880 census Wood Co, TX:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of family; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

Joseph S. WILLIAMS Self M Male W 40 AL Clerk In Store TN AL

Joanna R. J. WILLIAMS Dau S Female W 17 TX At Home AL AL
James M. WILLIAMS Son S Male W 14 TX At Home AL AL

I suggest you do some research on the 1900 census in Wood Co, TX. On the same page with Lorenzo and Lizzie is a Landford family, wife's given name is Arah, and Lorenzo and Lizzie have a daughter named Arah. Love those less than common names, helps to track families. Lizzie's mother was a Landford.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
